We took a six person tour under the guidance of FX (Francisco Xavier). The nine hour tour was fabulous. FX shared his knowledge of Nice, Monaco and Cannes. He was polite, courteous and a great guy to spend the day with. We highly recommend Smartour Riviera and FX as its guide. 👍

This was amazing! My family for four (2 teenage boys) did this and it was one of our most favourite days in France! The spots and time spend at each spot was perfect. Our guide, I hate to admit but I forget his name but I believe it was Justin, made our experience so memorable. He was very entertaining and informative. We have such amazing pictures and memories from this tour. I highly recommend this and it was worth every penny.

We had an amazing time on our holiday in Nice, the weather was perfect. We met our tour guide at our hotel and she was lovely. I can't remember her name, so sorry. She took us to all the main sites and she was honest about everything and gave us lots of hints and tips. I would recommend this trip to everyone. It was worth every moment. There was no way my husband and I could have done it all alone and the fact that it was all in one day we enjoyed as it gave us the rest of the holiday to enjoy the city.

Francis Xavier is a fantastic tour guide, interesting, knowledgeable, entertaining. We never felt rushed, even though this tour covers a lot of places. The scenery and villages were beautiful. However, Viator’s description needs to tell travelers that every stop except Monaco and Cannes requires them to climb steep village streets. I called Viator before booking this tour and explained that I am disabled, I can walk, but I cannot climb uphill. Viator incorrectly told me that there is walking but no climbing uphill.

I guess we were there in the midst of their vacation period of summer. It was very crowded and felt like we were all herded around like cattle as you see crowds and crowds of people. It was hard to leisurely stroll and take in the essence of being in Monte Carlo or to have time to sit in the lobby of the grand Casino. There were lines for the restrooms, lines to take photos, lines to get into buildings, lines to get out of buildings! Hectic! Well, I guess this is how they prosper with the visitors from the cruise ships being bus loaded in and overcrowding the streets with taxis and traffic everywhere!

Indeed July and August are the 2 busiest months of the year on the Riviera If you enjoy tranquility and warmer temperatures, enjoy your stay between September and April Unfortunately we are not responsible for the attendance rate of the period you have chosen to stay but we try to offer the same quality of visit all year long

We signed up for this tour because we wanted to visit Monaco AND the rest of the sites on this tour sounded interesting. We did enjoy Monaco although our tour guides' historical knowledge was twisted and inaccurate. IE, the Grimaldis of Monaco came from Genoa Italy but were not Italian (not true, they were Italian); Rome was under French control until 1871 (not true, it was part of the Papal States and under the control of the Vatican). Oh, well. Our driver (I think his name was Leo) dropped us off in Monaco and met us an hour later. We enjoyed walking to the palace and seeing the church where Princess Grace was wed. Back in the van we were driven to Eze, and a perfume factory. Including this sham in the tour is downright stupid. The six Americans on the tour refused to go in while the two Argentines took the tour. After this the driver took us to a hill at the base of Eze and gave us twenty minutes to walk to the top, look around and walk back down. Once again, only the Argentines complied. We returned to Nice where the other four Americans left the tour, and after an hour for lunch on our own, we rejoined Leo with the Argentines to drive to Cannes and Antibes. Driver Leo apparently liked speaking Spanish more than English and gabbed constantly in Spanish to the Argentine couple while we sat isolated in the back of the van. Once again he dropped us off in Cannes, gave us a two minute narrative on the film festival then met us an hour later. We drove through Antibes and its supposed billion dollar yachts but we didn't follow the Spanish narrative. From there we went to Saint Paul de Vence where we were given a brief overview of its history then sent into the town on our own for an hour. It's a neat little town on the top of a hill with a beautiful view of the countryside. The historical nature of the town is lost in all of the commercial ventures that occupy it. It felt more like a Disney land shopping area than a historic French village. I wish I had researched a way to do this on our own.

Bonjour et merci pour votre charmant commentaire , je pense qu'effectivement il aurait était preferable pour vous d organiser votre visite de la region de Nice par vous meme , comme vous le suggérez en fin de commentaire , votre commentaire est méchant et rabaissant pour Léo qui a mis tous son coeur et son professionnalisme à effectuer cette visite et vous acompagner et si vous avez été aussi gentil durant votre journée il ne faut pas vous étonner qu il se soit raccrocher au couple d Argentin qui eux étaient peut être moins arrogant et prétentieux que vous pouvez l'être. la parfumerie Fragonard n est pas une obligation , vous avez d ailleurs choisi de ne pas la faire et critiquer ce pauvre couple qui a voulu la visiter en disant que c est stupide c'est absolument impolie de votre part . dire que st Paul de Vence est un "disneyLand " est carrément insultant de la part d un étranger . ce village est un village d artiste peintre depuis plus d un siècle !!! chacal ,Picasso, Matisse et bien d autres y sont venus pour la beauté de son architecture , sa lumière exceptionnelle et sa vue époustouflante, là ou vous n y avez vu que des boutiques de Disneyland comme vous dites d autres y voient : de l'ART , car encore aujourd'hui les plus grands artistes français s y exposent ... autre chose que des mickey et Donald non ?? enfin sachez que nous mettons tout en oeuvre pour travailler dans la bonne humeur et le partage avec toute la passion qui est la notre pour cette profession , et nous passons bien volontiers des personnes qui pensent mieux connaitre notre pays que nos guides et qui donnent des leçons sur tout et tout le monde , un conseil lors de votre prochain voyages ne vous mélangez pas à la population locale et je dirais meme mieux aux autres touristes, car si on a le malheur de parler espagnol vous ne le supportez pas et ce malgré les efforts du guide pour vous faire passer une bonne journée Amandine & Anthony

We were a group of 10 and struggled to find a van/minibus that would fit all of us, and we had very specific plans of what we wanted to do. We came across Smartour and they were perfect and accommodated us and all of our questions, with many different plan changes on our part. We asked for special trips, and Tony, our driver and tour guide, did exactly as we wanted to do. He even changed are the size of our van on one of the days and switched our destination day of upon request when the weather wasn't great. Tony was so knowledgeable, kind, and helpful, and I would recommend him to everyone. We had an amazing two days, visiting the Gorges du Verdon, Eze, Monaco, Monte-Carlo, and Menton. I highly recommend Smartour, as we had an incredible experience. Worth every euro.

Wonderful tour which started with a pickup on time. Our guide was amazing with full of knowledge and a wonderful driver, he made sure that we got enough time at each location to visit the places that we should! Covered almost all the places starting from Antibes -> Cannes -> Saint Paul[Beautiful town] -> Monaco -> Eze.
It was very well managed and planned. I recommend the tour to anyone who just want to spend a day and visit such lovely places.

Along the Mediterannean, into the hilgh country behind - vistas of mountains, glamorous neighbourhoods and cities, and the sea. Breathtaking views. Leaving from Nice, no suitcases, and collected at the hotel. Safe, personable and courteous tour guide/ driver who was able to navigate the area well, detouring where necessary while maximising the scenic views. The stops were well chosen and the duration adequate to get a sense of place. The narrative was knowledgeable, giving a historical, geographical and social background as applicable. A wonderful full day experience ending with a perfume experience.

A great option for people that really want to meet the best of the French Riviera. I recommend it to couples, families and everyone that want to meet the greatest places around Nice. Anthony, our guide, was incredibly kind and explained us a lot of details of every place we´ve visited. Great experience even in the winter!
